ABOUT THE FILM

Nighttime in a quarter of Havana. A couple of men are playing a game of dominos while the women pass the time gossiping. Out of the blue, a man finds the granddaughter of Mercedes and Ramón at a park close by. It looks like she's been raped. The situation escalates, as chauvinist tendencies are incited to the point that a culprit must be found at any cost.

strong, subtle storytelling from beginning till end. terrific script & cast, a maximum of stars for this moral tale which cleverly steers clear of moralizing...
